Judy Jernigan Obituary

Julia "Judy" Jernigan, 77, of Nashville, passed away on January 14, 2024 at her home. Judy was born in Sandersville, GA on July 23, 1946, to the late William and Namoi Smith Chivers. Judy was a cherished member of Concord Primitive Baptist Church where she found comfort in her deep love for Jesus and fellowship among the members. Judy's joy radiated when surrounded by her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She created lasting memories through board games and card games with everyone she played with. She found serenity in the mountains and enjoyed her many travels there. Judy's cooking skills were unmatched, and her warm presence and delicious meals will be dearly missed at family and church gatherings.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Raymond Jernigan.
